Robin Hood

Universal Pictures held their junket for Ridley Scott‘s Robin Hood over the weekend, but I was unable to catch a screening of the film. A /Film reader named Ruggerman has sent in an early review. Their opinion of the movie seems to be in line with the views of some of the critics I’ve talked with over the past few days. For anyone interested, you can read the review after the jump.

The public hasn’t had a chance to check out Ridley Scott‘s Robin Hood, which premieres at Cannes, but if the receipts are high, we may see more than one episode featuring Russell Crowe as the famous British character.

Speaking to the Times Online, Scott defines this film as an origin story, saying, “It is the beginnings of how the man becomes known as Robin the Hood…You don’t really get that until the last few minutes. When you realize that ‘Ah, this is who he is’. Let’s say we might presume there’s a sequel.”

From his perspective, the idea of a sequel seems natural. “If there were to be a sequel to Robin Hood, you would have a constant enemy throughout, King John, and you would follow his reign of 17 years, and the signing of Magna Carta could be Robin’s final act.”

Read the source for some great quotes about that semi-famous early draft of the script, in which Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham were the same character. Some pretty blistering comments in there about that take (“CSI: Sherwood Forest,” Crowe calls is) which makes the long development and rewrite process make more sense.

After the break, we’ve got word on possible films to follow Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and Mulholland Drive. Yeah, I’m confused about that last one, too. Read More »

Update: Robin Hood has now been confirmed as the opening night film in an official statement.

The Cannes Film Festival is set to kick-off on May 12th, just two days ahead of Ridley Scott‘s Robin Hood being unleashed in several countries, including the US and UK. It would be perfect timing, then, to have the picture premiere as the fest’s opening night gala, guaranteeing global media coverage just when the PR campaign for the movie should be peaking.

And, yep, it seems that Universal’s behind-the-scenes negotiators have pulled that trick off, because multiple reports are indicating they’ve scored the slot. No official confirmation has come yet, but it seems like a good match for the slot and I’m pretty sure we’ll see this checked and locked soon.

There’s a good handful of other films rumored for slots at the fest, either in competition or out.
